Title: Multiturn rotary encoder with detector devices on a shared side of aprinted circuit board

Abstract: In a multiturn rotary encoder, a first code disk is arranged with an inputshaft for detecting the angular position of the input shaft within onerotation. To detect the number of rotations of the input shaft, amultiturn part is provided with further code disks in the form of magnetbodies which are driven geared down. A printed circuit board havingdetector devices for scanning the first code disk and the magnet bodies ispositioned between the first code disk and the multiturn part. Thedetector devices of the first code disk and of the magnet bodies aremounted on one common side of a printed circuit board which is oppositethe first code disk.
